列王紀下 16


1利瑪利的兒子比加執政第十七年,猶大王約坦的兒子亞哈斯登基。 他二十歲登基,在耶路撒冷統治十六年。他沒有效法他祖先大衛做耶和華視為正的事, 反而步以色列諸王的後塵,效法耶和華在以色列人面前趕走的外族人的可憎行徑,把自己的兒子焚燒獻作祭物。 他在邱壇、山岡和綠樹下獻祭燒香。

亞蘭王利汛和利瑪利的兒子以色列王比加前來攻打耶路撒冷,圍住亞哈斯,但屢攻不下。 當時,亞蘭王利汛收復以拉他,趕走城內的猶大人。亞蘭人至今居住在那裡。 亞哈斯差遣使者去見亞述王提革拉·毗列色,對他說:「我是你的僕人、你的兒子,現在亞蘭王和以色列王攻打我,求你從他們手中拯救我。」 亞哈斯把耶和華殿裡和王宮庫房裡的金銀送給亞述王。 亞述王答應了他,起兵攻陷大馬士革,殺了利汛,把城中的居民擄到吉珥。

10 亞哈斯王在大馬士革見亞述王提革拉·毗列色的時候,看到一座壇,便派人將壇的模型和詳細的製造方法送到烏利亞祭司那裡。 11 烏利亞祭司按照送來的模型,在亞哈斯王返回之前建造了一座壇。 12 王從大馬士革回來,看見那座壇,就到上面獻祭。 13 他在上面獻上燔祭、素祭和奠祭,又將平安祭祭牲的血灑在壇上。 14 他把獻給耶和華的銅壇從耶和華的殿前搬到新壇的北邊,銅壇原來放在殿和新壇之間。 15 他吩咐烏利亞祭司:「要在這座大壇上獻早晨的燔祭、晚上的素祭,王的燔祭、素祭,國中民眾的燔祭、素祭和奠祭,燔祭牲和平安祭牲的血也要灑在上面,但銅壇要供我個人求問之用。」 16 烏利亞祭司遵命而行。

17 亞哈斯王拆掉盆座的鑲板,搬走盆,將銅海從銅牛背上搬下來,放在鋪石的地上。 18 為了亞述王,他挪走耶和華殿裡為安息日而蓋的走廊,封閉了王從外面進耶和華殿的入口。

19 亞哈斯其他的事都記在猶大的列王史上。 20 亞哈斯與祖先同眠後,葬在大衛城他的祖墳裡。他兒子希西迦繼位。

King James Version

2 Kings 16

1In the seventeenth year of Pekah the son of Remaliah Ahaz the son of Jotham king of Judah began to reign.

Twenty years old was Ahaz when he began to reign, and reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem, and did not that which was right in the sight of the Lord his God, like David his father.

But he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, yea, and made his son to pass through the fire, according to the abominations of the heathen, whom the Lord cast out from before the children of Israel.

And he sacrificed and burnt incense in the high places, and on the hills, and under every green tree.

Then Rezin king of Syria and Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel came up to Jerusalem to war: and they besieged Ahaz, but could not overcome him.

At that time Rezin king of Syria recovered Elath to Syria, and drave the Jews from Elath: and the Syrians came to Elath, and dwelt there unto this day.

So Ahaz sent messengers to Tiglathpileser king of Assyria, saying, I am thy servant and thy son: come up, and save me out of the hand of the king of Syria, and out of the hand of the king of Israel, which rise up against me.

And Ahaz took the silver and gold that was found in the house of the Lord, and in the treasures of the king's house, and sent it for a present to the king of Assyria.

And the king of Assyria hearkened unto him: for the king of Assyria went up against Damascus, and took it, and carried the people of it captive to Kir, and slew Rezin.

10 And king Ahaz went to Damascus to meet Tiglathpileser king of Assyria, and saw an altar that was at Damascus: and king Ahaz sent to Urijah the priest the fashion of the altar, and the pattern of it, according to all the workmanship thereof.

11 And Urijah the priest built an altar according to all that king Ahaz had sent from Damascus: so Urijah the priest made it against king Ahaz came from Damascus.

12 And when the king was come from Damascus, the king saw the altar: and the king approached to the altar, and offered thereon.

13 And he burnt his burnt offering and his meat offering, and poured his drink offering, and sprinkled the blood of his peace offerings, upon the altar.

14 And he brought also the brasen altar, which was before the Lord, from the forefront of the house, from between the altar and the house of the Lord, and put it on the north side of the altar.

15 And king Ahaz commanded Urijah the priest, saying, Upon the great altar burn the morning burnt offering, and the evening meat offering, and the king's burnt sacrifice, and his meat offering, with the burnt offering of all the people of the land, and their meat offering, and their drink offerings; and sprinkle upon it all the blood of the burnt offering, and all the blood of the sacrifice: and the brasen altar shall be for me to enquire by.

16 Thus did Urijah the priest, according to all that king Ahaz commanded.

17 And king Ahaz cut off the borders of the bases, and removed the laver from off them; and took down the sea from off the brasen oxen that were under it, and put it upon the pavement of stones.

18 And the covert for the sabbath that they had built in the house, and the king's entry without, turned he from the house of the Lord for the king of Assyria.

19 Now the rest of the acts of Ahaz which he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?

20 And Ahaz slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David: and Hezekiah his son reigned in his stead.
